Twitter Twat

Well, I’ve decided to join Twitter. I’m not sure why, but everyone else does it so I thought I’d join the band wagon. Which to be honest, is a bit of a late wagon I’ve hopped onto. I’m fully aware that Twitter has been a big deal for some people for quite a while, but it’s just never been something I’ve ever given a shit about. Not saying that anything has changed… I still don’t give a shit. The only reason why I am joining it is to use it as another platform to advertise my mummy blog.

As many people who write a blog probably know, you feel like you’re only writing it for your mum… alright mum, cheers for reading init! However, I’d like it to be a bit more than just that, no offence mum. I get that I’m probably no different to a lot of mum blogs out there but who knows unless you try! If anyone at all gets a little bit of enjoyment out of reading the shit I have to say then that’s not such a bad thing aye?!

Anyway, I joined Twitter… but I don’t even know where to start. I don’t care enough about celebrities to follow everyone under the sun to find out what they’re up to. I can’t even think off the top of my head of a celebrity that actually interests me… is that bad? Well, Philip Schofield is a bit of a crack isn’t he… followed him on Snapchat and he’s where the bants at! No, but honestly, I followed This Morning and Jeremy Kyle purely because that’s all I feel like I’ve actually watched since being on maternity. Such a boring life. Bring on baby so I can put Mr Tumble on, he’s probably got a Twitter right?! I am totally only kidding…

Sometimes I think I’m a bit of a grumpy granny when it comes to social media because I don’t know how to use half of it and it gets on my nerves. Apart from Instagram, which I do use on a regular basis because I haven’t got to talk to people! I’ve been on and off Facebook more than Jeremy Kyle guests are on and off relationships. Because I cannot stand people’s misery. As brutally honest as I can be, I have absolutely no sympathy for people who are so obviously asking for it. If you’re genuinely miserable, surely you’re not going to be posting it on Facebook. And if that’s the case, then shout and I’ll be there to try put a smile on anyone’s face.. probably unsuccessfully because I’m extremely socially awkward…(which is a whole different story for another day) However, if you’re posting a status online saying “Feeling down today” or some vague comment along those lines, then frankly you can sit there and wait for some sad sap to ask you “Why what’s wrong?” for you to probably only reply with “message me” or “nothing don’t worry” or “I don’t want to talk about it”…. like… really?! AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR DAT! Excuse me while I get out my violin. How much of an attention seeking fart do you want to be? I seriously can’t be arsed with people like that to be honest… you get just one life to live and you don’t know how long you’ve got to live it, and if people wanna live it being miserable publicly on Facebook then you crack on but I certainly won’t be wanting to get in contact with you to hear all about your minor dramas. That’s what I watch Jeremy Kyle for.

People genuinely suffer from depression, anxiety and all other mental illnesses that can really affect peoples lives, and your melodramatic status’ are nothing compared to what some people have to go through. Maybe these people need to just remove themselves from Facebook for a while and appreciate the world around them for a moment. I think that’s something I experience myself. The more I immerse myself into Facebook, the more I can send myself stir crazy, obsessing about people who no longer care about me who I thought once did. So if I just stop scrolling for a while and make myself get up and do something, I already feel better… even if all I did was vacuum the house or scrub the toilet, there’s more satisfaction in cleaning poo off your loo than reading someone’s drama, I can tell you that!

Ok, I’m gunna stop talking about it now… I can sense myself getting a bit too deep into this. I could rant about it all day…. because I friggin’ hate what social media has done to the world. I get my happiness from the people around me. From actually speaking to them in person rather than through messaging. I’d rather not message people constantly, so that when I actually meet up with people I haven’t wasted all the conversation we would have had through messages, or already found out what they’ve been doing all week because I’ve been stalking them on the socials. As I said, I’m socially awkward enough as it is, I don’t need social media making me worse, making me lost for conversation.

Largely contradicting myself in this blog aren’t I considering I’ve just joined Twitter – LOL! Nah, I’ve not joined Twitter to be nosey, as I said, I hope it will help my blog grow! So to help me spread it, you socialites…re-tweet or like, or follow or whatever it is that you can do to help promote my little rants! Mainly because I haven’t the foggiest what I’m doing and I trust that you lot will!
